The history behind the person is quite interesting but the statue is just a statue! It's okay but nothing special. This is the starting point for several walking tours, just outside the Golden Gate.

Great big statue. Popular as it is rather imposing. Situated at the opposite end of the old palace city walls.

Often, luck is funny. This massive statue is important for those who wish to try their luck ! Nothing special about tjis statue , which is located in the Old Split, you won't miss this on your walk tour. Reminds me of Harry Potter movies,...More

He's a big guy with a big golden toe that you should rub if you're there. It will bring you luck. He looks pretty furious too which I suppose is good.

A statue you have to see and touch found at one end of palace. There's cafes, bars and resturants close by. Also there's a park with stall closeby too.

The statue is supposed to bring good luck if rubbed. It sits at the entrance gate to the old city and palace - complete with "Roman Centurions" for photos. This gateway id referred to as the Golden Gate.

Remember to rub the statues toe and make a wish. They say it will bring good fortune and that you will return to Split one day. You can see which toe to rub because it's been so worn over the years it's a different color...More

In front of the "Golden Gate" you find at the edge of the old town of Split this monumental figur near a small park and a church.
